This entree is a fantastic way to savor fresh tomatoes, especially during the warm summer months. It’s quite simple, but the sweet, tangy tomato glaze is so good. —Karen Gehrig, Concord, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small bowl, mix honey and 1 tablespoon oil. Add tomatoes and toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 5-7 minutes or until softened.
  2. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5-6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Serve with roasted tomatoes; drizzle with glaze.
Editor's Note: To make your own balsamic glaze, bring 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10-12 minutes or until thickened to a glaze consistency. Yield: about 2 tablespoons.
